UP IN THE AIR
If it’s daytime at your destination during the flight, try to relax instead of sleeping. And heed the advice of healthy flyers everywhere: staying hydrated, eating in moderation and limiting your alcohol and caffeine intake can really reduce the effects of jet lag, Banks says.
For years, I’ve been using a homeopathic jet lag remedy called Jet Ease ( jetease.com.au) developed in New Zealand. These chewable tablets, which are taken every two hours during the flight, contain herbal extracts such as arnica montana and wild camomile to help improve circulation, reduce dehydration and relax, so that you arrive more rested, which is the first step towards avoiding jet lag.
